RODGERS Family HistoryThis famous Scottish name is of Old Germanic origin, from the Old German personal name "Roger, Rodger", composed of the elements "hrod", renown, fame, with "geri, gari", spear. The personal name was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066 in the forms "Roger" and "Rogier", it is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 in the Latin forms "Rogerius" and "Rogerus". A number of surnames were developed from the personal name, including the "pet" forms Hodge and Dodge, and the patronymics Rogers(on) and Rodgers(on), the latter form being the one found most often in Scotland.
